The Friends of Barrow (FOBS) are an active group who organise events to support the school which include a Film Night, Quiz Night, Summer Fun Day, Children’s Disco’s etc. These events allow FOBS to buy items for our children to use which otherwise may not be available.

Membership of the association is open to anyone with parental responsibility for children attending John Harrison CE Primary School and anyone who is interested in furthering the objectives of the association.
The overall aim of the association is to foster a good relationship between the school and the community along with helping to provide items that the school cannot readily afford.

The association has in the past been very successful, supplying the school with many items.


We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in recruiting new members to our committee.  FOBS will therefore be able to carry on working hard, to raise funds, for our school.

The new FOBS officers, for the coming year, are:

Chair/Vice-Chair shared roles :  Mrs L Whiting/Mrs T Pike

Secretary  :  Mrs H Wilson

Treasurer    Mrs A Skipworth

Thank you to everyone who attended the AGM, your support is very much appreciated.

Following a fundraising event, it was decided to allocate funding to each class in order to purchase items of their choice.

These are the items selected so far.


We are delighted to announce that the tremendous sum of £745.61 has been raised! Thank you to everyone who sold/bought tickets or donated any of the fantastic prizes.  Pictured are a few of the winners with their prizes.


Another successful Mothers' Day Gift event.  Our thanks go to all who purchased a gift and to Gooseman's Growers for supplying the beautiful plants.
